AC Ajaccio vs Lens
Ajaccio – Lens
Ajaccio put a hard defensive fight versus Reims Friday night trying to stay undefeated and to deny Reims title at least for a round. Eventually they lost 0-1, putting an end to their series of 5 consecutive wins and remaining 3rd in table and not taking advantage of Nimes draw. But an encouraging evolution for them in the perspective of the remaining games. Will be an interesting fight for 2nd spot with Nimes cause is almost impossible for them to finish lower than 3rd spot. Not too difficult schedule for Pantaloni’s boys so even direct promotion is achievable. Maazou will miss for this game (he is loaned from Lens and was an agreement he not to play vs Lens).
Lens made another false step at home, finishing 3-3 versus LeHavre. They were in a comfortable 3-1 lead at HT but they pleased with so less in second half, inviting LeHavre to attack and losing in the end 2 points. Despite having a series of 4 games without a defeat Lens took 3 consecutive draws in the process and are still on 16th spot, 5 points more than Nancy. Two tough games (this and next round) but with last 2 accessible game perhaps Lens will be saved in the end from relegation. Zoubir is fresh injured and miss this trip.
Ajaccio have 6 consecutive wins in 2018 on their own pitch, over all losing only 3 games versus top teams. So, I expect them to continue on same path and to take a new home win. gl
